Cyber Attack Slot Features
The cybernetic action of the slot takes place on a 5x4 grid where wins are formed from at least 3 matching symbols situated on neighboring reels, beginning from the leftmost one. All 1,024 ways are in play, so there's no need to worry about tracking individual pay lines. Standard payouts award between 0.1 - 0.6 times the bet for wins on low-value royals and from 0.4 to 2.2 times for scoring a combination of premium icons represented by various cyber icons.
Randomly on any base spin, the hacker may attempt the breach. If he's successful, the bonus round will start. If he fails, one segment of the breach meter will be filled, and one of three backup features will activate:
- Symbol Hack places a random amount of a chosen symbol on the grid.
- Multiplier Hack activates a ways multiplier between x2 and x5 on random positions.
- Wild Hack places a random amount of Wilds within reels 2, 3, and 4.
Cyber Attack Free Spins
If the breach is successful or it's the 6th failed attempt, the bonus round triggers awarding 6 free spins. Before the game begins, one symbol is chosen to be infected with the Hijack virus. It will be collected to a special meter every time it appears in view, up to a maximum of 20. Wilds also contribute to the hijacked symbol meter. After the last free spin, all gathered instances are placed on the board, starting from the top-left corner and continuing in the left-to-right fashion, and award a win according to the pay table.
All features available in the base game can also trigger randomly during free spins.
Cyber Attack offers a relatively straightforward composition of features, albeit charged with an interesting way of triggering them. Most slots simply activate them randomly throughout the gameplay, but in this case, it's all nicely tied to the breaching feature, creating a satisfying consolation feeling whenever the attempt is unsuccessful. Additionally, every time that happens, players get one step closer to the bonus, which further fuels the anticipation. The win potential in free spins is as clear as it can be, depending on the symbol selected by the Hijack virus. Naturally, not every choice has a chance of reaching the maximum win of 10,600x, and one would need an extremely favorable combination of multipliers to get there. Still, it's a fun round to play, especially if one of the premium icons gets infected.
The game's visual side is a typical futuristic/cyberpunk atmosphere shining with colorful neon lights from every corner in an otherwise dark city, while a suspenseful soundtrack efficiently builds the mysterious mood. All visuals, including the reel cage, the symbols, and various animations, perfectly reflect the cybernetic vibe by incorporating plenty of transparency and garish hues.
